Since his days as a Sektor player in Mortal Kombat 9, Gross has been a regular contender for the upper brackets of NRS games, but more often than not, he could not quite make the cut for a Top 8 finals. That all changed with Injustice 2, for which a competitive circuit called the Injustice 2 Pro Series would be launched. With the game following a legacy curve whilst introducing new mechanics to the table, Gross felt right at home with his trademark fighter, Green Lantern.
This year, we saw him climbing his way to the finals at Evolution 2017, where he finished in 7th place. He currently stands at 15th place in the Injustice 2 Pro Series rankings with 170 points. While he has quite the gap to overcome should he wish to advance to the Top 8 in the rankings, the noticeable evolution in his skill makes him a prominent threat on everybody’s radars. Should he succeed, we’ll see him at the Injustice 2 World Championships brought to you by ELEAGUE this October!
Gross will join the ranks of F3’s FGC division, which features a collection of notable names such as F3 Alucard, F3 Brolynho, and the Killer Instinct champion of EVO 2016 and KI World Cup 2017, F3 Sleep. Naturally, Gross’s specialty lies in Injustice 2, along with any other games released by Netherrealm Studios.
Congratulations to him for taking the next step in his path to greatness! We wish him and F3 all the best.
